You can savor all the chord changes & the phrases he plays over it. It's nice. Reply Les paul or Tele/gib? Reply kindergarden at home for dinner jeff told me to eat my fish thatstatemen for ya and gratitude sourceress Dr.Marieval on deck Reply I saw him live at the Shrine opening for Mahavishnu Orchestra in 1975! Amazing then and now Reply My bands guitarist just told me to learn this on the drums. Ah fuck. Reply Yo, I'm here from Guitar Hero 5 and I just want to say that FUCK THIS SONG, my hand feel as if they are on a different planet with 500X gravity. Was this guy scatterbrained meaning on cocaine while making this song because think he was. I haven't had acid in a couple of years since I had a REALLY BAD trip and found myself inside of a hospital sinking my teeth into a blood bag, oh wait that was bath salts never mind. Anyway I think I went on an acid trip by just listening to this song. Scatterbrain was an inside job now I have to get back to bouncing on my boys Guitar Hero controller to scatterbrain on expert difficulty. 10/10 song.

Reply MI the only one who hear "octavarium" ( 17:00 ) by DT ? https://youtu.be/ZVMIk3xYaYo?t=1017 Reply Long ago, it took about a day to input this theme part on a mobile phone that can enter songs。 Reply Beautiful track Reply How many of you was even alive back then,I'm guessing few,this man transcends the Yardbirds,John McLaughlin and since he's a guitarist I don't know where Billy Cobham factors into this Reply This came about during a down time. Jeff was just noodling around on his guitar, and keyboard player Max Middleton said, ‘’play that annoying, schizophrenic thing you do.’’ Then Max wrote some chords underneath it. Masterful. Reluctantly Sir George Martin suggested putting a string arrangement toward the end. He knew Jeff’s hesitation. But Beck trusted and went with it. In the final production he just loved it. Always the innovator, always looking for something new, the greatest rock and roll electric guitar player of all time keeps evolving. We’ll never know another…and that’s okay with me. Reply 1:35 Reply Any GiornoGiovannaers Reply I love how some songs can tell a story . Reply This is just epic stuff! Does anyone write music like this anymore??? Reply And just to add, Jeff is one of the KINGS OF TONE!! Reply Sounds like really cool 70's porn. Creepy yes: but 70's porn. Reply 2019? Reply This album won best jazz album of the year in 75 and he was a rock and roll player. Of course he always played like Jeff Beck. He had a really good jazz album with Stanley Clark too around this era. Reply Interesting how the keyboard shifts constantly from ear to ear, evoking the song's namesake. Reply 20 out of 10 Reply What amezing composition Reply This is still light-years ahead of anything produced today….Mahavishnu inspired. Reply More people should do a cover of this song. It’s one of those riffs that will make you a better guitar player. Reply The best album Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
